graduate upgrading

About face-to-face assessment

Upgrading to Chartered membership face-to-face is a time-effective way to talk about your current HR and L&D experience with an experienced CIPD assessor.

In advance of the assessment you’ll be required to provide feedback from your line manager or client along with a copy of your current CV. You’ll need to pay the non-refundable assessment fee of £120 for Chartered Member or £250 for Chartered Fellow. There are no forms to complete and the whole assessment will take around 45 minutes. During your assessment you will be invited to talk about your experience with one of our experienced assessors. You'll receive notification of the outcome within 10 working days. If you are successful, we'll send you your new member card and certificate.

Please see our candidate guidance document (PDF 63 KB) to help you prepare.
